Brooks: our need of discontent

May 10, 2009

    When we heard this, we and the people there pleaded with Paul not to go up to Jerusalem. Then Paul answered, "Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."
    -- Acts 21:12,13 (NIV)

    Bad will be the day for every man when he becomes absolutely contented with the life he is leading, with the thoughts he is thinking, with the deeds he is doing; when there is not forever beating at the doors of his soul some great desire to do something larger, which he knows that he was meant and made to do because he is still, in spite of all, the child of God.
    ... Phillips Brooks (1835-1893)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You constantly lead Your children towards their destiny with You.
